A Maine thrift that once faced closure by federal regulators because a sister thrift failed is hoping to raise $10 million in capital to repay a unique debt to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Portland-based First Coastal Corp. has another year to repay a $9 million promissory note from January 1995, with about $700,000 in interest. As security the thrift had pledged to the FDIC all of the common stock of its subsidiary, Coastal Savings Bank.
